The region is renowned for its vast fields as well as numerous rivers. The horizon beyond the plains of Ostrobothnia seems to stretch further than anywhere else in Finland. Shimmering rivers wind through the lush countryside dotted with red ochre farms, making it a view worth watching. In late summer the fields turn golden and then silver from the sparkling frost. This is authentic Ostrobothnia that brings observers a sense of ease.

The largest lake in the region Lappajärvi, created by a meteorite 73 million years ago, is a favourite location for both locals and tourists. Besides, Seinäjoki has one of the few artificial lakes in Finland, a clear proof of the Ostrobothnians' entrepreneurship.
